I believe Emily Dickinson speaks of hurt from an relationship. Her thoughts
stress, You love me--you are sure. To me she asks and answers before she
receives the truth. She says that at a part in her life it seems she would
not be able to bear the pain, but at some point in her life she became
stronger. It seem that she was saying come on and let's get it over with.
Tell me the truth, I can handle it.

emily was a master poet .. she was so frank with ideas and so smooth with
thoughts so acquainted with words .. that she created many master pieces
like this and "I am nobody" etc. its a beautiful arranged piece of art that
only Emily could write .. simply rich
